Icon5 windshield wipers extending down to far?

When the windshield is dry the wipes work fine but when the windshield is wet the wipes extend down farther than they sit when they are off. They make a loud noise as they hit the plastic right below the wipers. It's pretty annoying listening to the smack the plastic below were they sit. Has anyone had this problem or know how to fix?

Yeah, just re-adjust them. I think its a 14mm nut holding them in.. its been a while so i dont really remember. Just remember to bend them up or it might seem like theyre hard to pull off.
When you put it back on dont tighten them too much because you might have to keep adjusting them to your liking. Make sure they line up nicely with your windscreen when they go back and forth

The bolts themselves could be loose causing it to slide more when its wet and when its dry it gets more grip so they dont really excessively slide around??

No they are not stripped they are secure but the part that the wipe ARM connects to moves down , you can actually push the wipe ARM down to the plastic that its hitting. Got aggravated and put it back together cause I had to leave and it was raining.
